I’ve been reading up on using valve stem extensions. Lots of pro and con comments.

I just bought my first dually vehicle. It came with a steel braided extension for the inner rear tires. No way you could ever check the air pressure or air up the tire without the extension.

The fronts are a PIA to check and add air but can be done. On the outside rears, I cannot get a gauge or air chuck to the stems.

I’ve ordered extensions I’m planning on adding them to the fronts and outer rears. Stainless steel, made in the USA. I’ll keep a close eye on them. The vehicle is a class A RV so it’s not an every day drive vehicle.

What say the TFF? Yeah or nay on valve stem extensions?

Jimmy

Same problem here. Mine has chrome wheel covers and the opening in the cover is way smaller than the opening in the wheel. My covers are held on with 2 or 3 fake chrome lug nuts, very easily removed giving a lot more access to the valve stem. The rest of the fake lugs are built into the cover and not removeable. I found a "lug wrench" for the fake ones in a cabinet in the motor home.....

BTW there are extensions on some of mine and the same SS hose to the inside rears and I have not had a problem with them.

Just stay out of the mud with the extensions, mud has a habit of breaking them off.


The United States used to be "One Nation Under God". What happened?
